Use What You Have Month

I am declaring January to be Use What You Have Month for myself. After the excesses of the holiday season, it'll feel good to use what I have on hand. No quick stops at art supply stores, no sneaking into bead stores (always seem to see someone I know) and no yarn shop visits.

This will be a challenge for me, but I've done it before, so I can do it again.

Today's quote comes from Calvin Coolidge: Economy is the method by which we prepare today to afford the improvements of tomorrow.

Any - this a terrific motto for the month, heck...for the year! I was recntly asked for a donation for an organization that makes cards for soldiers. I'm packing them a box of goodies. Feels good to purge. And it will feel good to dig through my supplies "i HAD to have" and put them to use. thanks for voicing your challenge. I'll join ya.
